Indoor Showers

Glass Blocks for a Refined Look

Glass blocks are commonly placed into walls to let in some sunlight. But this wetroom in a Nova Scotia home features a neo-angular shower wall that almost resembles a wall of clear ice. The edges are left open so you can easily walk in and a bench is placed by the glass window for easy relaxation. You even get the option of using the fixed shower head or the concealed shower above.

Notice how this shower just flows seamlessly from the bedroom, making it a truly inviting space. The sunlit ambiance is perfect for energizing during the day and as night falls, you’ll be able to look out into the dark night sky in a cleansing experience within this pristinely designed shower.

Nothing spells nostalgia quite like alpine cabins. With some design and plumbing magic, you can have this nostalgia and warmth with each and every shower. This guest bath found in a Dominican Republic home features a wetroom sheathed in American pine.

You have the option of using the fixed showerhead or the handheld shower. The sun peeps through it’s concealed windows, filling the space with brightness but offering a sense of privacy too. A ladder is placed just beside the shower and serves as a towel rack – a simple yet clever touch.

Spiral Into Relaxation

With this unique design though, it’s organic and unobtrusive even if it’s opaque. Top this off with an exposed rain shower and you’re all set.
